Annette Long: Up next: Water quality trading

Published December 14, 2008 - The Gainesville Sun
On Nov. 21, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection held a public workshop to discuss plans for a Water Quality Credit Trading Program. In 2008 Florida House Bill 547 made changes to the Florida Watershed Restoration Act (FWRA) that primarily addressed water quality trading.

The amendment authorizes permitted polluters to trade credits when a reduction in their permitted loads is achieved. Today this program is limited to a pilot project in the Lower St. Johns River Basin.
